    Release Date:

    Featuring Burt Lancaster in a brilliant, Best Actor Oscar-winning performance, Elmer Gantry is an unforgettable screen drama by writer/director Richard Brooks (In Cold Blood, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof). Handsome, opportunistic, immoral. Travelling salesman Elmer Gantry (Lancaster) is all this and more. So when he stumbles into a revival meeting and discovers that he can hustle money in a tent-show as easily as in a saloon, Gantry converts to evangelism.

    Joining forces with Sister Sharon Falconer (beautiful Jean Simmons), he delivers demon-blasting oratories that bring him fame and fortune. But when an old flame (Shirley Jones) re-appears, Gantry is forced to confront demons of a more worldly order - long-buried secrets that will make his "saintly" life a veritable Hell on Earth!
